'Once Upon a Time' star Robert Carlyle breaks down the many sides of Rumpelstiltskin
Which version of the multi-faceted character is the biggest challenge?
When you're on a red carpet, sometimes you only have a minute or two with an actor and you need to get to the root of what you're actually curious about.
For lots of reporters, that's spoilers and hints about upcoming episodes, which is totally fine and I know folks love to hear about that.
But if you give me two minutes with Robert Carlyle
(and Begbie is presumably not on-topic), I'm gonna ask about process and in the case of his work on "Once Upon a Time
," I want details on the construction of a character who is simultaneously four or five different characters, who each have different accents, intonations and mannerisms.
So if you're interested in what I'm interested in, this two-minute chat from PaleyFest
in Los Angeles is mighty interesting.
